This Japanese climbing variety bears tender, crisp, and slightly tart 9″-long cucumbers that are excellent for slicing or pickling. Listed by J.M. Thornton & Company in 1894, this variety’s strong grasping tendrils make it ideal for growing on a trellis or fence, but it can also be grown on the ground. 58-65 days. ±950 seeds/oz.
Instructions – Sow seeds outdoors in 12″-diameter hills after the last frost when soil is warm. Space hills 6′ apart in all directions. Can also be started indoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost for an earlier harvest. Cucumbers benefit from consistent moisture. Provide support for vines to save space.
